Show Off Your Love Story for a Chance to Win Your Wedding Rings + More

If you just got engaged, chances are all the VIPs in your family and inner social circles know about it - and they’re pumped for you, of course they are. That being said, you will get to a place where you feel like your ride or dies might want to hear about all the wedding stuff just a little less (they love you two, they do, for real, but the ‘getting married in X amount days’ countdown can get old, just sayin!). And for when that time comes, VRAI is here for you. Us, too, we’re always here to be your fangirls leading up to the wedding! The brand that puts a sustainable touch on modern and timeless fine jewelry designs just launched their Summer Bridal Experience - and they want to hear ALL about your love story and what makes it so special. Showing off counts in this case, so make sure you square up on all the steps to win!

Make VRAI a part of your vows

As you jump into wedding planning, VRAI wants to join you on the journey! Not only do they want to discover your love stories (more specifically, your romantic tales that stir the soul), they want to be a part of them.

VRAI is just so cool, IYKYK. If not, tho, here’s the takeaway!

The brand designs fine jewelry and engagement rings for life’s truest, most visceral and palpable moments. Through an innovative customization experience, unique diamond shapes, and recycled gold, they bring couples and fashion enthusiasts alike unprecedented and accessible luxury. Their jewelry features diamonds sustainably created by VRAI, in their zero-emission foundry, the world’s first certified carbon neutral producer, in fact. They utilize renewable, hydropower energy to create diamonds that are atomically identical to mined diamonds - doing so ensures that every created diamond is unique, has guaranteed origin, and bears no human or environmental toll.

Their packaging, too, is made from recyclable, compostable, and reusable materials. Shipping boxes are constructed from recycled cardboard while the molded trays (that hold each jewelry box) are made from compressed sugarcane pulp, an environmentally-friendly and renewable resource.
